Didn't you already get new numbers to reflect the expert class? I’d say screw it and do what you planned. If your results are so good that they protest you then maybe you are a sandbaggerYou made me stay up all night thinking.
In reality, I am barely even up to par with the amateur guys. I joined the expert more as an experiment to see if it would help my skills increase being with the faster guys, because it really made a difference going from novice to amateur.
But truth is, especially on a course like this week, I will probably be in the way of a lot of fast guys, making it unsafe for them and me.
I imagine I can change my class to amateur at sign ups before the race?
